Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has gone on the record to state that the upcoming Wii U console will be priced at a "reasonable" level.
"We won't make the same mistake that we did with the 3DS, which was considered relatively high by consumers," said Iwata. The 3DS, which launched in March 2011, ended up being one of the fastest-discounted consoles in history, with a drop of up to one third of the recommended retail price coming into effect in July of that same year.
Details as to what that price will be, however, are still a mystery, as Nintendo are yet to announce the price of the Wii U in any territory.
The news comes from an interview with Iwata-san that appeared in Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun.
